None of us can prevent growing older. There is, however, a lot we can do to prevent injury and maintain optimum strength and function in our daily lives. The natural process of Ageing in all individuals results in a host of degenerative, mental and physical problems. The physiological changes result in reduction of muscle power and tone, reduced range of motion and bone density. Symptoms include general body weakness, fatigue, faulty body posture, bowel and bladder incontinence, loss of balance, loss of stamina and reduced exercise tolerance. For an individual to lead an independent life with dignity, it is important to carry out activities of daily living (ADL) unassisted.
The aim of Geriatric Physiotherapy Programme at WellnessOne is to provide preventive health care and to maintain the fitness level in a healthy individual, treating diseased or disabled individuals (e.g. paralytic patients) and finally, treating conditions that cause disability (e.g. musculoskeletal diseases like back pain, arthritis, etc). Our well-designed treatment plans help senior adults with geriatric symptoms to regain physical and functional independence so they can return to the activities they enjoy. Our specialists have been trained primarily to facilitate Elder-Mobility and enhance independent ADL activities as well as to relieve pain, improve balance, strength and function.
Get moderate aerobic exercise and strength training at least three times a week, wear proper fitting shoes, engage in group activities, remove trip hazards from the home, get eight hours of sleep a night, eat a healthy and balanced diet, and use assistive devices as needed.
If you would like assistance with any geriatric problems, please contact us for an evaluation.
